If you would like to submit a manuscript for publication

Submissions of fiction and non-fiction ideas are welcome from authors, compilers and illustrators. However, we do not accept picture book or poetry submissions. Synopses and sample text are preferred to full typescripts. Please do not send original text, illustrations or artwork in case of loss or damage in transit. We are unable to guarantee a reply to every submission we receive, but the inclusion of a stamped, self-addressed envelope is necessary if you would like your submission to be returned.

We are always open to hearing about new and wonderful ideas, but before you submit your idea or art to Buster Books, please familiarise yourself with our titles. This will save us time and save you postage.

Submissions can either be emailed to or posted to:
